" Sound the loud STimbrel o'er Egypt's dark Sea."] Blow ye the trumpet abroad o'er the sea, Britannia hath triumphed, the Negro is free; Sing, for the pride of the tyrant is broken, His scourges and fetters, all clotted with blood, Are wrenched from his grasp;-for the word was but spoken, And fetters and scourges were sunk in the flood Blow, ye the trumpet abroad o'er the sea, Britannia hath triumph'd, the Negro is free. Hail to Britannia, fair Liberty's isle! Her ,frown quail'd, the tyrant, the slave caught her smile; Flyoz} the winds to tell Afric the story.;: Say to the mother of mourners, " Rejoice !" Britannia went forth in her beauty, her glory, And slaves sprang to men at the sound of her voice: Praise to the God of our fathers :--'twas HE,, Jehovah, that triumph'd, my country, by TIIEE.'

GREAT BRITAIN. OBSERVANCE OF THE SABBATH IN SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 8 January 1835
OREAT 33 SR.ZTAIX OBSERVANCE OF THE SABBATH IN' SCOTLAND. A pastoral admonition or address has been issued by the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, inculcating the better observance of the Sabbath. It states that though some-transgressions of the law of the Sabbath, are less frequent than at former periods, there is too great cause to feat, that there has been on the whole an increase of flagrant iniquity, and that many things are done, without hesitation or scru ple, of which it is 'a shame even to speak.' Amongst these enumerated a great increase of unnecessary travelling on the Lord's day, both for purposes of business and amusement; that shops are kept open on that day for the sale of provisions and other arti cles of traffic ; that multitudes, forgetful of their most sacred duties and their immortal interests, have be come accustomed to wander in the fields, to frequent scenes of recreation, or to spend their time in riot and drunkenness, and other immoralities.

English Extracts. COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 8 January 1835
English Extracts. COLONIZATION. The new colony which it is proposed to establish in South Australia is naturally exciting considerable in- terest and discussion. The proposed plan on which it is to be founded, provides that Government shall in no case make grants of waste lands, but shall dispose of them on a regular system of sales by auction, and that the whole proceeds arising from these sales shall be applied to defray the expense of conveying labour- ers to the colony. The first of these provisions will prevent the settler from obtaining more land than he has the means of improving, and will thereby avert the evils occasioned to other colonies by the opposite system, which, by locking up good lands from those who were able and willing to improve them, has per- petuated their unproductive state. By the esta- blishment of this colony a new field will be opened for the available exertion of British capital and in- dustry, and for the beneficial disposal of the redun- dant populati...

DI)EADFUL STEAM-CARRIAGE , ACCIDENT. ON' Tuesday, afternoon, the 2nd of August last, the city of Glasgow was thrown into an indescribable state of excitement and alarm, in consequence of the re ports which reached town, announcing the total de struction of one of the steam-carriages, which left Glasgow at two o'clock, on the Paisley road, in the immediate vicinity of the TIhree-Mile-House. It apprears that the carriage, having gained the summit of the acclivity at the plice in question, stopped for a minute or two and took in a supply of fuel and water, when, just as it was in the act of proceeding on its journey, one of the right-hand wheels gave way the machine came to the ground with terrific violence -the boiler was instantly crushed as flat as a pan cake, and simultaneously with which the bottom of the vehicle was shattered to atoms by the explosion, and all the passengers, twelve in number, were more or less injured.

Religious Intelligence. SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 8 January 1835
etiigiouttn ntetliatene. SOUTH SEA IX LANDS. By the recent arrival of a vessel from Tahiti, intelligence of a mixed character has been re ceived from the missionaries at the Georgian and Society Islands. In some of the groups, the cause of God, of truth and of virtue appears to be progressively advancing, while in others it is evidently and lamentably retrograding.. In Ta hiti and the islands under the government of its Queen, things are in a highly favourable state; the authorities having lent their influence to wards advancing the cause of reform, by recom mending and requiring the people to attend the public worship of God and by enforcing and car rying into effect the various regulations of the Temperance Societies. In the latter respect strong measures have been adopted with the hap piest effect: constables have been authorised to perambulate the districts and to seize and destroy ardent spirits wherever they can find them; and so vigorously has this measure been acted upon, th...
